I steep my grains(without a bag) in 1.5-2 quarts of water per pound of grains. While they are steeping I start the majority of my water in the boil pot heating up while heating up a gallon of water in another pot. When I am done I pour the grains through a stainless steel strainer into the boil pot. Then I pour the gallon of heated up water over the steeped grains into the boil pot. This way I eliminate some of my time waiting for the boil water to heat up and rinse as much flavor and color off of the grains as possible.

I say "If it feels good... DO IT!!" I personally dump my adjucts into a fine colendar and rinse them off into the primary prior to tranfering the wort. Never had a problem and it cools the spent grains off before they are fed to my goats. Just my 2cents...
